Looks like the Walther P22.
Not CA approved....no info if it has a LCI or mag safety.

yeah i pretty much love how CA tries to influence national gun laws.

i'm happy/sad that it seems ruger isn't really allowing it with some of their new guns (SR1911, SR22 et)

First they do a Kel-Tec designed 9mm . Now a Walther .22 . WTF is this Hollywood where no one has any original ideas anymore.

More and more I respect what J. M. Browning achieved.

Well the Walther has a magnesium slide that has come under some criticism for wear issues. The SR22 is aluminum with steel rail inserts...in other words, forget what it looks like, it's still a Ruger .

I think what's really going on here is that Ruger sees the future of their centerfire defense autos as being the SR9/9C/40 family with some LC9s tossed in, and they didn't have a decent .22LR trainer with a similar DAO trigger feel. So this is the result - it's the stand-in for bigger brothers that the older series just wasn't.

If you want the best rimfire handgun Ruger makes, it's still in the Mk3 family, in the factory competition model or any of them upgraded to full-race. But as a trainer/stand-in for an SR9 or the like, this gun make sense, or for those cases where you don't need max performance.

Being the Ruger nut that I am the thought of another 22 is nice but I'm going to have to see this one in person because I don't like the looks of it in these pics.

Yeah that does look a lot like a Walther P22, but with "more desired" features.
It has a standard position magazine release and the safetey/decocker is frame mounted instead of slide mounted as in the Walther.

It looks like Ruger's entry into the tactical trainer area to compete with Walther, the Sig Mosquito, and S&W M@P 22.

The Mk II series will still be their flagship model, but its unique design with the bolt instead of a slide does not make it the best training tool for other pistols.

They went WAAAY overboard with the serrations IMO. I wouldn't touch that bufugly thing with a barge pole.

$400 does sound pretty steep, but that is the MSRP so I would expect retail to be in the low $300s and probably less than most Walther P22s. However, depending on the pistol's popularity there will probably be a premium for the first couple of months.

You would think it would retail less than the standard mk III and even the22/45s because of the materials. Come on its polymer and aluminum, while the mk IIIs are all steel.

Um yeah that's to much! I can get a Mark III or 10/45 for that much including DROS. Sorry Ruger I'm a fanboy but that's a no go.

Exactly what I was thinking, I paid $259 for my MKIII 22/45 (before tax and DROS) and I would expect the SR22 to be at the same price or slightly cheaper than the base model 22/45...and like you said, polymer and aluminum vs steel.

I'd say California is a no go on this gun. I downloaded the instruction manual and they have a small port to look through to see if a cartridge is chambered. Nothing at all like they've got on the 22/45 - Mark III series. It does have a magazine disconnect.

My understanding is they want a huge loaded chamber indicator that has writing on/near it, and they'd probably would want a lit up neon sign as well.

The 22/45 model with replaceable grips is also not on the CA list and one would think that all that Ruger would need to do is submit it for testing, but it hasn't happened. I wouldn't hold my breath on this coming to a California gun shop near you.

This why I didn't get a 10/45. I was waiting for the onethat you can change the grips but seeing this it looks like it won't happen.

Bummer, looked promising until I saw DA/SA.
Net research: looks to be 8 lbs on the DA, and 4 lbs on the SA.

WANT!

But yeah... SSE is your only option for now. It's a fairly new gun, but I bet it ends up on the roster.

Is it made by Ruger? Or is it by another company, but has a Ruger logo on?

Wow, I may have to start supporting Ruger more for producing some of their new stuff without having to go through craziness to find them.

I see a few SR series pistols in my future.

Ruger's MSRP is usually at least $100 more than what they go for in the market.

My girlfriend is debating getting this or the LCR in 22. We'll wait til both of em make it on the list and I see more reports. I read an early review for the SR22 that his specific gun had poor accuracy. Hopefully its just an isolated case.
